Mighty vs Mighty+ Vaporizers

With the launch of the all-new Mighty+ vaporizer happening this week, I figured it’s a good time to revisit our review of the original Mighty, and lay out the key differences between the Mighty and the Mighty+.

What is the Storz & Bickel Mighty vaporizer?

The Mighty (and Mighty Plus) is a handheld, portable vaporizer which offers delicious and consistent vapor. It can be used with dry herb and concentrates. It has impressive battery life that should last you through 8-12 sessions. It has an all-black matte exterior with a finned design to help keep it cool, and an LCD display screen.

Both have essentially the same exterior case, so visually they are nearly identical. See differences mentioned below.

Both devices utilize a combination of convection and conduction heating. This combo is all about efficiency and makes every draw awesome throughout your session.

The Mighty+ is the updated version of the Mighty, with a few new features added as well.

Our original Mighty review listed some cons of the product. A big one was that the Mighty has a rounded bottom and can’t stand on its own. While they do sell accessory products to fix this, that shouldn’t be necessary — a product like this should just stand up on its own straight out of the box. Luckily, the new Mighty+ is better. It has little feet on the bottom which allow the device to stand up on a table or flat surface. This feature alone is worth the buy if you’re debating between the Mighty and Mighty Plus.

Another flaw we found in the original was that it requires a special power adapter. Doesn’t everything just charge via USB these days? Apparently not, but the good news is the Mighty+ does. It has a USB-C socket, and a faster charging time as well: it charges to 80% in a mere 40 minutes! The original took 2-3 hours to charge.

Heat up time is slightly improved as well. 70-80 seconds for the original, and 60 seconds for the Plus. There’s also a new Superbooster temp feature which easily increases the Mighty+ temp by 27 degrees with just a few presses of a button.

At first glance, the two devices look almost indistinguishable. But cosmetic differences do include orange buttons on the Plus, verses grey buttons on the Mighty, and same goes for the colors of the model names; and the Mighty Plus has its finned design in a diagonal chevron pattern as opposed to the Mighty’s straight across horizontal pattern.

Taking a look inside the device, the Mighty has an aluminum filling chamber (perfectly suitable) but the Mighty+ has a ceramic-coated filling chamber (better, sturdier, more resistant.)

Lastly, there is a small difference in price. The original Mighty comes in at $350 while the Mighty+ costs $50 more at $400. A small price to pay to get those pumped up features if you ask us.

The original Mighty is the Cadillac of portable vapes, so we knew that unveiling a Mighty+ had better mean Storz & Bickel had some definite upgrades up their sleeve. Judging by name alone, anything “plus” should have beefier features and more amped up capabilities than its predecessor. But does the Mighty+ deliver?

The original Mighty was already built like a tank and easy to use. It produced high quality, consistent, smooth vapor. Really there were only a few things about the device we found to be lacking, and none were even close to being deal breakers.

That said, the Mighty+ is definitely the superior machine. It produces the same exceptional vapor, from the same convenient and portable device. It offers excellent battery life, only now charges faster and more universally. With expanded temperature features and a faster heat up time, your tasty sessions just got even better. And to top it off now the damn thing finally has feet.

We love the Mighty. But it’s the Mighty+ for us.

    I have the mighty +
    The feet at the bottom are weirdly shaped and it won’t stand up on its own.
